Special: German Museum of Technology Berlin

German Museum of Technology is the English name for “Deutsches Technikmuseum” in Berlin. In general, it covers everything when it comes to technique, be it the development of a computer or the progress of sewerage. From shipping to jewelry production, from aviation to telecommunications. If you happen to be in Berlin and are interested in technology, the German Museum of Technology is the perfect museum to plan a visit!

However, you should be aware that the museum is just huge and that just a few hours are definitely not enough time. Honestly, you could easily plan a whole day for the museum as it is so big. But admittedly, as everybody has different interests, it might be a good idea to inform oneself in advance where the most exciting themes are located.

In general, the history of shipping is presented in a very interesting and vivid way. Thousands of exhibits are to be found and admired.
